    This is a big step in the right direction for the franchise and I can only hope that things continue that way in the future.

    Capcom has gone a little bit experimental here, but what we have here, episodic or not, is a step in the right direction. We miss some puzzles, but there's some Resident Evil soul in this game.

    While it has obvious areas for improvement — its level design, its online functionality, its visuals — Resident Evil Revelations 2 has a strange sort of confidence in what it's trying to do that the series has needed for some time now.

    The most shameless vehicle for the series' gun fetish yet. [Apr 2015, p.114]

    It has its strengths, including some pretty cool monster design and fun puzzles, but by and large, almost everything it does has been done better by another RE title.

    Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is a step backward in this new spin-off series. It has a lot of content, but the episodic nature of the game has contributed some problems to the story and the gameplay, both of which are full of fillers.

    Raid mode returns, and while it’s not as exciting or fast paced as what we saw in previous title's Mercenaries modes, it adds an incredible amount of longevity to the game.

    After initially being turned off and instantly dissapointed because I felt like this game was too "actiony" I gave it another chance becauseAfter initially being turned off and instantly dissapointed because I felt like this game was too "actiony" I gave it another chance because my options were limited in survival horror. (basically played past 1 hour).
    If you rely on your first hour of the game, like me, you will MISS OUT!!!

    I'm a classic RE fan(1-3). And I am hard to please in this regard but I must say the atmosphere and the story/plot was nicely delivered. It was suspenseful and I felt it captured the whole "conspiracy" element the original titles had.

    This was my favorite game on PS4 honestly. I was shocked that it was that good for me.

First, the mood of the game is a bit darker than the previous Revelations. Which lends itself to the creatures you come across, the lack of not knowing what happens until the end, etc.
    Second, partner characters are now, PURELY support and can be controlled, which adds a different take on the gameplay depending on whom you are using. Third, fan favorites Barry and Claire are back and given a much more mature and aged tone to them. (Yeah, Claire is showing a TOUCH of age to her.) Fourth, the support and new characters are likeable, especially Moira. Last, the story is much more straightforward and focuses less on a "WHO DONE IT", kind of feeling to it, I'd say its an improvement!

    If I had to compare this to the other titles, it fits in between RE4 and RE5, in regards in how good the campaign is. I'd say it was pretty good. The boss fights are better than REV1 but not on the caliber of the mainstream series.

    Last is the AWESOME raid mode (Resident Evil with stat based weaponry and added challenges), which essentially doubles the size of the game! BY FAR, this title's raid mode is way better than before! Not only does each chapter give you 15 levels each to fight in. (a total of 60 for all of the chapters together) It features stages from Revelations 1 AND practically every place in Resident Evil 6.

    Now you should be able to get the full game at a pretty fair price. Trust me, ITS WORTH IT if your a fan of the series or not.

Essa nota meio baixa é mais culpa dos inimigos que foram mal trabalhados nesse RE, sem muita explicação científica pra alguns inimigos. Além disso eles são irritantes e parecem pessoas normais com raiva.
    O modo Raid é incrível e me mantém revisitando o jogo, principalmente para jogar em dupla com outra pessoa.
    A história é muito boa e foi incrível ver o Barry sendo realmente aproveitado em um jogo

    What happened to you? What have you become? The game at a time. paired puzzles and monotonous locations begin to seriously irritate.

    There was a hint of improvement of skills, but here collecting additional points in the form of jewels begins to bother. I don't know who came to mind to periodically switch to the characters to look for hidden objects. In view of the deliberate delaying of gameplay.

    In the first part it was really scary because of the limited space, now we have large open areas where you can dodge and shoot enemies. The fast dynamics of the game and the abundance of ammo (even on high difficulty) kill the whole sense of horror. The plot of the game is not hooked at all. Very boring and bland. Revelations 2 looks and is played very budget.

    I'm pleased with Raid mode, no QTE moments

    This will be my first and last resident evil game. The storyline sucked, and the bonus modes that are needed for plat sucked.

    What the hell
    This will be my first and last resident evil game. The storyline sucked, and the bonus modes that are needed for plat sucked.

    What the hell is the point of playing a game where you don't know where the enemys are unless playing as a specific character that doesn't fight? And then getting wrecked. Invisible mode is the stupidest thing i've played in awhile.

    Countdown mode was ok and normal.
